A Warm Welcome

Hello and a warm welcome to my website.  My name is Kate Howells and I am a fully qualified Counsellor and Supervisor based in Lifton Community Centre, Devon.


I welcome the opportunity to meet with you so that we can discuss how therapy could help you with the issues you are facing.  I understand that it can be a really big step to make the decision to approach a counsellor, particularly if you have not had counselling before. It is widely recognised that in order for therapy to be effective, a really good working relationship between client and counsellor is essential. In light of this, I offer a free 30 minute initial consultation so that you can decide whether you feel comfortable with me and if I am the right counsellor for you.


You may be struggling with such issues as...

  • depression

  • relationship difficulties

  • feelings of isolation

  • trying to fit in when you don’t feel the same as everyone else

  • a loss or bereavement

  • suicidal thoughts

  • anxiety or panic attacks

  • fear of leaving the house

  • domestic abuse, whether in the past or present

  • difficulty in coming to terms with events in your recent or distant past

  • low self-esteem

  • a feeling of meaningless in your life

  • the desire to understand yourself better

  • PTSD

My Services

  • Counselling

    My counselling work is primarily underpinned by Gestalt Therapy and this approach takes into
    account the uniqueness of each individual and their experience of the world.


    I provide a warm, non-judgemental and authentic therapeutic relationship from which we can explore what might be getting in the way of you living your life as you would like.

  • Couples

    If you are struggling with a relationship with anyone in your life and feel that it has become difficult to communicate with each other, then relationship counselling could be really helpful for you. 


    Having individual counselling helps with relationships, but if both parties attend, it can really increase their understanding of both themselves and each other.

  • Autism

    Do you feel as though you don't fit in? 


    Does it feel like others can socialise, have relationships, closeness and intimacy more easily than you? 


    Let me help you accept yourself as you are right now.

  • Supervison

    ‘We need to be continually learning, not just new knowledge and skills, but developing our personal capacity, for our own being is the most important resource we all use in our work’ (Shohet & Hawkins, 2012). 


    Supervision is essential to the wellbeing of both you and your clients.  I welcome the opportunity to discuss with you your supervision needs and offer a free 30-minute consultation so that we can decide together if I am the right supervisor for you.
